This blog was created to do a project with children in Year 6 during the 2008/09 school year. The activity involved writing sentences in the past simple using the information given under the pictures of the famous people. The sentences had to be written on their own blogfolios. Then they had to give an oral presentation of their work in class. See some presentations here. The aims of this activity were both introducing the past tense through non linguistic contents (important people from history). Apart from that, students were devoloping their ICT competence. It was a great experience and we hope that you like it!
